A Beautiful Plantation home with high quality finishes and a heated pool
We live in Roswell, GA, a suburb of Atlanta. We visit our beach house about 3-4 times a year and regret leaving it each time we have to go back to our busy lives in the big city.
Owner purchased this House in 2013
Why Owner chose Plantation
We first discovered the natural beauty and the pristine beaches of St George Island in 2011. We purchased our house in the Spring of 2013 - both of us had immediately agreed that "this one is for us" after only glancing at the pictures. The Island offers a unique combination of uncrowded beaches, no high rises, great fishing, and an overall Old Florida feel that is becoming harder and harder to find. We chose the Plantation for the added security of the 24-hour gated access, beautiful native vegetation, and park-like landscape maintenance. The Plantation also has special building restrictions and protective covenants to ensure very low building density. Having underground utility lines is a big plus as well. Our house is one of the relatively newer ones built in the Plantation (2004), and up to the highest coastal construction standards. It has high grade Andersen windows and doors, a new Trex second level deck, custom kitchen cabinetry, new SS appliances. There is quality trim and finishes throughout. We love our beach house and try our best to make sure that it is always in an excellent condition.
What makes this House unique
A beautiful, secluded white-sand beach for long walks, shelling, or just playing in the sand. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. An unbelievably clear night sky (when was the last time you saw the Milky Way in the city?). A private, heated pool and a hot tub for relaxing after a day at the beach. The Plantation has a great new clubhouse with a three quarter Olympic size community swimming pool, shaded picnic area, and fitness room. Amenities also include three tennis courts, a privately owned/public use landing strip, and access to excellent fishing at Bob Sike's Cut. The are plenty of paved paths for bicyclists, jogging and walking enthusiasts. St. George is close to historic Apalachicola, a quaint old town with art galleries, gift stores, restaurants, and the best oysters in the world.

This property is awesome. We had 10 adults and 2 babies for 7 nights, plenty of room with very nice setup.
Really nice property and just as advertised. Comfortable sleeping arrangements for 8 with room to spare. Beach chairs and bikes are available for use and in decent shape. The pool is a plus when finished with the sand for the day and the outside shower make a quick rinse very simple. We also did put the fish cleaning station to use after a fishing trip as well. This is our second trip to St. George and really enjoy, that while there are plenty of other people on the beach, the crowds are nothing like the more commercialized areas. Island life really does show itself at St. George.
We had a blast! We love this house and have stayed here twice now. It has a short walk to the beach. We also loved that they provide lots of beach chairs, beach wagons, a canopy, umbrellas, and bikes! We had a perfect vacation!
The house is gorgeous. We had a great time. Close to the beach & the pool & hot tub were a bonus.
Wonderful but short stay !!!!!!
While we were there it was wonderful ........ unfortunately half of us had to leave on the second day of arrival due to a family death ........ the few that could stay loved it.
We are thinking about trying to come back next year.
